I have been trying to do some research on a Destination Wedding and in my searches came across this fabulous sight and I cannot wait to be a part of it.
I got engaged back in June while on vacation in Punta Cana. At first I was so excited to plan a huge traditional wedding here in Michigan (with both of our families and friends it would have been 300+), then I started planning...LOL. I soon found that many halls were overrated and over priced. They all looked like any other hall wedidng I have ever been too, including all of my friends. So I took a poll of coworkers, friends, and sometimes even bartenders and waitresses, that were already married and asked them if they could do their wedding all over would they still have the same ol' hall wedding. My survery came out 98% said destination wedding all the way. Hmmmm...I don't want to feel that way on my wedding day and the more and more I look into an island wedding the more HAPPY i am becoming to begin this process. (Unlike the Hall process, I felt depressed!). So here I am!
I would love any advice, I mean Ill take any advice. :-)
I am planning on Jamaica because I have always wanted to go there and I have already been to Punta Cana. I have been looking into Sandals resorts but am beginning to realize I need to shop around. I do like the Sandals idea though....we plan on having our wedding and honeymoon there.
ANY suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated! I look forward to meeting people and learning all I need to about Desitination weddings.
My first question important question though...do you think it is important to have a travel agent? Or can this be done on your own?
